This has been on the radar for a while (not sure if I’ve posted it before) but it recently got a fairly big update, and I felt like it needed to be shared. The UI is impressive if you ask me, and the app is very feature filled. If you’re on the N9, and you […]

To any Symbian, Maemo or MeeGo-Harmattan user, NaviFirm was the best tool, for being able to install updated firmware for your Nokia device.

Less than meets the eye: A rant on perception

Less than meets the eye: A rant on perception

| June 13, 2013 | 70 Replies

A long time ago, my boss in a previous career once told me “Perception is reality” and he believed that 100%. I was never convinced because I know that the reality of something may be totally different from what it seems. Sure, people can perceive anything to be anything but that does NOT mean that […]

This is actually super cool! It may be over a year since the last Software Update, and nearly two years since device announcement, but the Harmattan community are still finding little secrets left behind by the team.

The N900 is running NEMO Mobile snapshot 0.20130218.1, part of the Mer project on MAEMO which otherwise looks like Harmattan to me. […]
